SEWT becomes first company to receive golden award in anti-drug campaign

สวัสดีค่ะ(Hello), I’m Nucharee.

▲ สวัสดีค่ะ(Hello), I’m Nucharee.

I’m Nucharee of Sumitomo Electric Wiring Systems (Thailand) Ltd. (SEWT).

Thailand is now in the rainy season (June to October); it is drizzling almost every day. In spite of such weather, we at SEWT in Thailand are working hard on a wide variety of social contribution activities. Today, I’d like to write about one of these efforts – our participation in TO BE NUMBER ONE, an anti-drug campaign.

TO BE NUMBER ONE, an anti-drug project led by Princess Ubolratana of the royal family, strives to promote cooperation among all Thai people to eradicate drugs. This campaign is so famous that everyone in Thailand knows about it. Not only SEWT but many other companies and organizations participate in the campaign.

As part of the campaign, we at SEWT promote various efforts, including raising anti-drug awareness at the company, keeping young people away from drugs, and establishing an anti-drug network outside the company.

Specifically, to raise the anti-drug awareness at the company, we disseminate anti-drug messages via bulletin boards and in-house broadcasting, release pamphlets, and hold orientation sessions for new staff members. As a result of these activities, all of our new staff members have joined TO BE NUMBER ONE, and are now actively engaged in various efforts.

Moreover, in a bid to keep young people away from drugs, we tell them about the fear of drugs by inviting children of our staff members to the company or visiting our neighboring schools. In both cases, we demonstrate our ingenuities to ensure that, while at play they can learn about drugs in an easy-to-understand way.

Furthermore, to establish an anti-drug network outside the company, we promote a wide range of activities. We visit other companies and invite them to participate in TO BE NUMBER ONE, and promote the campaign via radio. As a result, we have now been appointed by a government organization to support other companies and organizations. In addition, through CSR activities conducted outside the company, we aim to build a stronger sense of solidarity among our staff members.

As noted above, we have been actively promoting drug eradication efforts not only inside but also outside the company. Highly valued for such commitment, in 2011 SEWT became the first private company in the campaign’s 9-year history to receive the golden award. It was very honorable for all of us at SEWT to receive the trophy from the Princess. Our happiness was utterly beyond words.

Our commitment originated from the belief that we could do something for society even if we’re busy working for a company. We were truly pleased that we received the award. We’d now like to enhance the quality of our activities so we can receive the diamond award, which will be bestowed if we strengthen our activities for three consecutive years.
